One Baby Food Jar and Lid
Hot Glue Gun/Glue
Fabric (cut into a 7in diameter circle)
1. Using a basic running stitch, stitch around the circle approximately .5-.75 inch from the edge.
2. Pull your threads to create a little sack then push in a small amount of filling to create a little cushion. Pull the threads tight
to create a ball and tie off the ends. Push to flatten the edges so that the bottom of the puff can be hot glued to the top of the lid.
3. Using your hot glue gun, apply a generous amount of glue to the top of the lid and hold your cushion down until glue is dry.
4. Using your ribbon, glue it around the edge of the lid to hid the cushion bottom and lid edges.
5. Put your miscellaneous pins in the jar and a few on top for a functional pin cushion!
